31 Day Scriptural Guide To Becoming Debt Free

. .

I read years ago that what you focus on ... expands in your life.  If you want to be debt free ... then you need to focus your mind and mouth on things that will enable and empower your journey to financial success.

To assist you in your financial freedom journey I've put together 31 powerful scriptures to enrich and engraft within you God's desire for you to be debt free.

I encourage you to memorize one scripture every day.  For instance, on Day 1 memorize the Day 1 scripture and confess it throughout the day.  On Day 2, continue confessing the scripture from Day 1 as you commit the scripture for Day 2 to your memory.  Meditate on these scriptures and ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten your spirit with each word. 

This exercise is important...it's not enough to just read the Word...you must memorize it and confess the scriptures on a daily basis.  Remember out of the abundance of the heart...the mouth speaks.

Every day you need to be thinking and speaking about being debt free.
